How long was your c section recovery process?

I’m a week and two days post surgery and feeling slightly disappointed with the recovery process. I heard a lot of success stories from women who were back on their feet in a week and sadly I am not one of them.

I get winded after a short walk or even taking a shower. I can’t help but feel like I got the worse end of the deal with a cesarean. Having to recover from major abdominal surgery on top of figuring out life with a newborn certainly hasn’t been easy. Luckily my husband gets to be with us the first two weeks but to be quite honest, I am dreading the day he has to go back to work... I just don’t know how I’ll be feeling physically.

I’m just trying to keep my head above water here and find myself wondering if I am the only one struggling with the aftermath of my cesarean?
